    Default Installation instructions - featured listing on external page

    Reference the addon at this location: http://support.open-realty.org/showthread.php?t=19275

    Question 1: In step 3, I need to change:
    $OR_URL="http://www.mydomain.com/PATH/TO/OR"; //without trailing slash

    If OR is installed in 'http://www.mydomain.com/subdir/', where do I put 'subdir'? In other words, which of these is correct:
    - "http://www.mydomain.com/subdir"
    - "http://www.mydomain.com/PATH/TO/subdir"
    - "http://www.mydomain.com/PATH/TO/OR/subdir"
    - etc.

    Question 2: In step 5, is the following the exact code (it is listed only as an example)? Do I need to plug my domain name or subdirectory in anywhere?
    <?PHP
    include("PATH/TO/extfeat.php");
    ?>

    Question 3: This addon is to display the featured listings on a non-OR page. Is there a way to display instead the 'latest listings' on a non-OR page? I notice that there is an addon for the latest listings (http://support.open-realty.org/showthread.php?t=19344) but it apparently works on on a OR page.

    Sorry, but I'm non-technical and have never installed an ADDON before, so this is not clear to me. I've tried various combinations and can't get it to work.

    Thumbs up Re: Installation instructions - featured listing on external page

    Answer 1:
    http://www.mydomain.com/subdir is the one to use


    Answer 2:
    <?PHP
    include("PATH/TO/extfeat.php");
    ?>

    PATH/TO/ represent where in your domain you have uploaded the extfeat.php file but it is relative to the page you have to show the featured listings on. so if you have uploaed it to to use on a page located at http://www.mydomain.com/mypage.php then use

    <?PHP
    include("extfeat.php");
    ?>

    this is to be place where u want the listings to show

    eg.

    <html>
    <body>
    <div><h2>Featured Listings</h2>
    <?PHP
    include("extfeat.php");
    ?>
    </div>
    </body>
    </html>


    Answer 3:
    I'm gonna try to make an addon to do tht as i need that function on a site as well.

    hope this helped

    Cheers
